Collingwood out as Morgan gets Bangladesh Test call

Paul Collingwood has been ruled out of England’s two-Test series against Bangladesh with a shoulder injury, it was announced on Sunday.

But batsman Eoin Morgan, who played in the side captained by Collingwood that last Sunday won the World Twenty20 final against Australia in Barbados, has been called up into a 12-man Test squad for the Bangladesh series opener, which starts at the Middlesex left-hander’s Lord’s home ground on Thursday.

Meanwhile England fast bowler Stuart Broad will miss the series in order to undergo a “strengthening programme”. Collingwood’s absence has created room in the Test squad for 23-year-old former Ireland batsman Morgan, although South Africa-born Jonathan Trott also remains in contention.

For middle-order batsman Collingwood, a mainstay of England’s team across all three formats — Tests, one-dayers and Twenty20 — a left shoulder injury sustained during the World Twenty20 will give him a break from the international treadmill.

“Paul will undergo a period of rehabilitation for a shoulder injury and has been ruled out of the Test series against Bangladesh,” England national selector Geoff Miller said.
